D&D 3e/3.5e/d20The forum for conversations specifically related to the rules and procedures of Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition, 3.5 Edition, or any fantasy game using the d20 system or a variant thereof (commercially published or not).
Hey guys. Last session my extremely bad handwriting led some of my level 3 Pathfinder party to mistake the word "shortcut" for "shout-cat", and a new table joke was born. A shout-cat is hardly that ridiculous compared to D&D magical beasts, so I figure why not throw it in next time the adventure needs one?
I haven't been able to find an exact analogue (i.e., a party-appropriate monster, preferably feline in nature, that uses some or many sonic attacks). I was looking into the refluffing/restatting existing monster route, and wasn't sure if you guys had any good suggestions for a base monster to use for this. Currently I was looking at downgrading and refluffing a Chimera (CR 7), giving it a sonic breath weapon rather than any of the listed options.
By level 20 though, you aren't capturing a wizard. A character lives to level 20 by being the most ruthless, lucky, capable, and paranoid bastard around. A wizard is throwing around a 30+ Int score and has, entirely in character, planned contingencies for his contingencies. He may well be running around with flat out total immunity to harm, he does not walk outside without an entire bevy of defensive magics around him and enough magic items to buy himself a nation.
